What is an EAN ?

EAN, or EAN13, stands for International Article Number (originally European Article Number). It is an extension of the UPC codes and you'll find them as barcodes on most everyday products. Sometimes the barcode is also called GTIN or GTIN13 (Global Trade Identifier).

Which information is included in an EAN ?

The EAN includes the country of origin, the manufacturer and a product number. In addition to that it includes a checksum.

When you only look at the barcode, you can't easily see which product it belongs to. Thus, this website provides a reverse EAN lookup, that tells you the product the EAN code belongs to.

Is this EAN database complete ?

Currently the database includes over 292.634.000 entries, that is huge, but still only a subset of all the EANs ever issued.
